The notion of multitudes—that is, the powers of groups or collective bodies—was also double-sided: while central to emerging aesthetic paradigms especially in the realm of theater, and the literary movement known as sentimentalism , it was also invested with negative connotations, like the ominous meanings sometimes given to the term le peuple.
